The Quilt Pounce Powder Pad is one of the fastest and easiest ways to transfer a stencil design to your quilt top! You simply swipe the chalk filled powder pad over the stencil and your quilt top is ready for stitching. This is excellent for both machine quilters and hand quilters.
Each Quilt Pounce Powder Pad set comes with an empty pad and a bag of chalk. To begin using the pad, you’ll need to fill it with the Quilt Pounce chalk. To fill the pad, remove the cap from the top and pour the chalk into the pad’s reservoir. The powder will need a little help to sift all the way through the pad. So you’ll need to firmly pat the pad on a hard surface the first time you fill it. I like to take it outside and firmly pat the pad against my deck railing. If the powder isn’t coming through easily, you’ll want to pat the closed pad a few more times.
Swipe the Quilt Pounce Powder Pad over the top of your stencil to transfer the design. If you’re getting too much powder on your quilt top you might be patting the pad instead of wiping it. Once your pad is really saturated with chalk it doesn’t take much powder to transfer your design.

We always recommend testing a new product on your extra fabrics before using it on your quilt top.
Be sure to read the instructions carefully before using your Quilt Pounce Powder Pad. All of the chalks are wash out or brush off, but the Ultimate White Quilt Pounce Powder Pad is also iron off. Be careful not to mix up your different chalks!
